over obama's new health care law, it has to do with what president obama has been telling americans about how this will affect health insurance for individual buyers. >> if you like your dr., you will be able to keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, he will be able to keep your health care plan. first of all, if you have health insurance and you like your dr. and you like your plan, you can keep your doctor and he can keep your plan. no matter what you have heard, if you like your doctor and you like your plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage of the plan you have. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. our approach would preserve the ride up -- the right of americans to keep their plan. >> we are now learning that that couldn't be further from the truth. 15 to 75% expect to get notification that their health insurance has been canceled. that is all because their existing policies may not meet the standards mandated by the new health care

go through a number of times president obama actually made that statement. looked the american people in the eye trying to sell his health care plan and guaranteed them if they liked their health care plan, they're going to be able to keep it. on march 6, 2009, he said -- this is an exact quote -- "if somebody has insurance they like, they should be able to keep that insurance. if they have a doctor they like, they should be able to keep that doctor." then on may 11, 2009, "americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health care plan they have." on june 2, 2009, "if they like the coverage they have now, they can keep it. it." that was in a letter to senate democrat leaders. on june 11, 2009, president obama said, "americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health care plan they have." on june 15, 2009, this is probably the most famous one that i remember, president obama in an address to the american medical association said, "if you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor, peri period."

president obama to keep that promise that he made to millions of americans. we can't protect them all. the only way we can honor that promise for every american is to repeal the healthcare law. but for millions of americans, they actually would be able to keep the healthcare plan that they actually like. we would give them that freedom that president obama and the healthcare law is taking away from millions of americans. >> two promises, one is that those plans a lot of people want to so-called keep they don't exist anymore. the insurance companies are just booth them out so you really can't have the plan that you want. >> they could reintroduce those easily. >> you can't enforce the insurance companies to offer them again. >> they certainly. would the mrkt place would certainly allow that part of the problem with the new plans have additional man datsz so their cost is being driven up which is the other promise in terms of lowering the -- bending the cost curve down. that also is a broken promise by this president. >> the other problem fors i tooa look at a couple they are junk polic

42% of americans approve of the president's job performance while 51% disapprove, but president obama is not backing down on obama care. he's just wrapped up a visit to boston where he fronted an impassioned rally in defense of his health care, hardline, no backing down and he gave no quarter and importantly, no delay. that's what he seems to be against and the president is most insistent and defiant against criticses of obama care. take a listen. >> nobody's losing their right to health care coverage, and no insurance company will ever be able to deny you coverage or drop you as a customer altogether. those days are over and that's the truth. that is the truth. >> all right. we'll get to fact checking in just a minute. the president was in boston because he wanted to use romney care as an example of a slow starting, but successful health care reform law. listen to this one. >> and by the way, all the -- all the parade of horribles, the worst predictions about health care reform in massachusetts never came true. >> all right. now cnbc had a special producer fact-checking the president
over and over again. now, in fact for about 15 million americans who have individual health insurance, that's not true. right now, individual policy holders are getting letters from their insurance companies, in some cases canceling coverage, offering new obama care, compliant policies that cover more and may also cost more. even though many will be getting federal monies. it's not quite the same as saying nothing will change. that with president obama is making that promise. he knew it, it seems, jim acosta at the white house. jim, how do you know we know he knew that? >> what the president is really talking about is the vast majority of americans who already receive their health care through their employer, through medicare, medicaid, through the v. about 5% of the insurance market do get their coverage on the individual market. and that those people are being affected. they don't deny that. but they do say that the president was not misleading people when he made that claim. he was just talking about the vast majority of americans when he was making that claim repeatedly. here's ho
one time political rival, former governor mitt romney. the white house has said mr. obamas main message today will be to be patient. >> ok. we'll see if americans listen to that. >> let's bring in randall pinkton joining us from washing top. is there any indication how the secretary will handle the questions today if it turns hostile? >> we expect that it will be turning hostile. that's a fairly good certainty. she's expected to give more of an explanation about what is being done, the specifics about the plan, the hiring of the technical experts, who are trying to fix the problems with the website. of course, she will probably also apologize, but we are expecting that secretary see bellous will be much more defensive in her responses, rather than yesterday. yesterday was the apology, today, what they're doing to fix it. >> we're hearing a lot in the last few days about americans receiving notices that they will not be renewed next year for their health care insurance. can we expect specifics today from secretary sebelius? >> not quite sure how many specifics we're going to get
report proves that the administration knew that millions of americans would lose their insurance all along. >> you keep your plan, you keep your doctor. >> and our week-long series on the missed obama care warning signs continues. >> no matter how you look at this, health care costs are going to increase. >> so what do people really know about obama care? >> think affordable care act is more affordable than obama care? >> no. >> ainsley earhardt hits the streets to find out more. "hannity" starts now. we knew for three years that the administration said if you like your plan, you keep your plan, they lied to you, the american people. and they didn't care. remember, this was their promise. >> under the reform we're proposing, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan. and if you do have health insurance we'll help to make sure your insurance is more affordable and more secure. if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan. >> if you have health insurance through your employer you can ke
the mainstream media for misleading the public about obama care. >> for the fewer than 5% of americans who buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. so anyone peddling the notion that insurers are cancelling people's plan without mentioning that almost all the insurers are encouraging people to join better plans with the same carrier and stronger benefits and stronger protections, while others will be able to get better plans with new carriers through the marketplace, and then many will get new help to pay for these better plans and make them actually cheaper. if you leave that stuff out, you're being grossly misled, to say the least. >> grossly misleading. no, he didn't call him a liar. just grossly misleading. which i think is even worse. because if what a journalist really -- their obligation is to do what, explore all the facts and present the entire story. clearly, this has not been the case in the mainstream media. the focus has been, and the defense of the republican party, is they're so concerned all of a sudden about all of these people who don't have insurance and

detuckble plans that a lot of americans had were not going to work in the obama care era. they are out the winwindow. >> appreciate the reporting. we'll expand this conversation next with former vermont governor and ralph reed and we'll talk about the details of this. later, my exclusive interview, an amazing extreme surfer carlos rescued a woman and surfed what may be a 1 00-foot water. it could put him in record books or kill him. if it was, it would be the biggest wave ever surfed. take a look. >> my foot was kind of coming out of my foot straps. >> your foot was coming out of your foot straps? >> yes. >> wow. >> yeah, that -- >> that's crazy. >> well, it was crazy. ready to run your lines? okay, who helps you focus on your recovery? yo, yo, yo. aflac. wow.

that the obama administration knew in 2010 that millions of americans would lose their plans and doctors, why was the president repeatedly saying the exact opposite, with no qualifications? andy, it is great to have you here, i know you say one of the biggest jobs of the chief of staff is to determine what the president gets to know and doesn't get to know. so what do you think? did he know or did he not know? >> i can't believe he doesn't know. that doesn't mean he may not have known the first time he said it. but the words the president speaks at the white house, everybody knows is very, very important. so the process, the written speech is reviewed by a whole team of people at the white house, and from a whole cabinet that would have been involved in the policy. so this major speech would have been reviewed by the staff at the white house, a very senior job to make sure that the president knows what he is talking about. >> would you have let president bush go out there and say repeatedly, knowing that could be millions of people that could lose their plan, you can keep your plan, period, o
top stories. president obama is praising the affordable care act for helping uninsured americans. and he said it is not a failure. mr. obama gave his peach in boston. the massachusetts health plan was the template for the health law. kathleen sebelius was grilled for three hours on capitol hill, she said that the problems would be fixed. i spoke with david merrit about the policy of the affordable care act. >> it was a full throated defense of the affordable care act, and she did a necessary job to go out and try and confront some of the critics and explain what is happening. i found two things somewhat curious, one, she actually said that the website had never crashed which in fact, it had. it even crashed this morning. the second one was that she was apologizing, which she certainly needed to do, and the president did an adequate job of that as well, then she shifted the blame to the contractors. when you're apologizing, you're usually apologizing for something you're responsible for. but she put the responsibility on the contractors. it flies in the face of harry truman's line
care act, and will enough americans sign up? that's tonight's inside story. >> hello, i'm libby casey in washington. as the obama administration races to fix the healthcare.gov website, critics are turning up the heat. the latest issue, how many americans who have to pay for their own health insurance now have to switch to fl comply with the law.
standard so that they can meet the needs of the american people. >> now jonathan, you advised on both the romney plan in massachusetts, and you've advised president obama. are these plans similar? is there any major differences? >> al, the federal law is based on the massachusetts law. it's really the same basic structure. it's a great structure. it's worked incredibly successfully here. we've covered 2/3 of the uninsured and it's been broadly popular. and it will be once americans understand what's in this law. >> but the main difference is the mandate, right? >> no. the mandate was put in place here in massachusetts. >> oh, wait a minute. there was a mandate in massachusetts? so all this criticism about the mandate now federal, they forgot about the mandate in massachusetts? >> the basic framework of a mandate was developed by the heritage foundation in the early 1990s as opposition to the clinton health care plan. it was adopted by governor romney, became the law. president obama who remember was initially opposed to the mandate came around to understand this is the right way to do
't he president? isn't obama care his program. first it was the rollout flop and now -- >> according to news reports, the obama administration knew for at least three years that millions, millions of americans would not be able to keep their health coverage. >> now, we know this morning is the president knew these letters were coming. >> the president kept saying, you know, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. your premiums will be going down. but, in fact, the letter is completing contradictory to that. >> if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. period. first, no matter what you've heard, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under the reform proposals that we put forth. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. >> if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. i don't want to interfere with people's relationship between them and their doctor. >> as the law states, if you had a
that seriously. but many argue the criticism is warranted. i'm end pain and reporting. >>anny: president obama may have promised americans they can keep their insurance if they like it but obamacare is now switching up insurance in at least three states. virginia, kentucky and idaho have told insurance companies to scrap plans that don't meet minimum coverage requirements laid out in the affordable care act. virginia, kentucky and idaho say it's just easier to start fresh. some customers with old plans may pay more for new ones; others may get subsidies. about half of kentucky's private insurance market will have their current insurance plans discontinued by the end of next year. family and friends gathered together to remeber 13 year old andy lopez. old andy lopez. to those who've worried... old andy lopez. suffered in silence... hoped... and lived in a state of fear... welcome to a new state... of health. welcome to covered california. the place to find quality, affordable coverage. financial help for those in need. and nobody can be denied because of a pre-existing condition. enroll now at
the sales job of obama care and that's why we're all saying that we shouldn't allow the american people to be impacted like this. >> okay. so that is the republican criticism of obama care, which is one issue in this and you've already spoken about it. let's watch what you had to say about this on your show. >> i'm going as the scariest thing of all. i'm going as the healthcare.gov website.
